    Dressed to the Nines: Williams-Proctor Fashions
    Friday, April 14 - Sunday, September 3, 2017
    In 1865, 14-year-old Rachel Williams noted in her diary, “I went down [the] street with Mary this afternoon, hunting for dress trimmings and never got so tired before, I think.  I also got a hoopskirt.” During the nineteenth century, the clothing of children and adolescent girls, like Rachel and Maria Williams who grew up in Fountain Elms, reflected that of adults and of Victorian-era mores. For the first time in the Museum’s history, rare dresses and accessories worn by the Williams daughters are showcased in the exhibition, Dressed to the Nines: Williams-Proctor Fashions, on view through September 7 in the Museum’s period room settings. From baptismal gowns to wedding dresses and mourning attire, these outfits explore the lives of one Utica family.

    Sunday, June 18 - Monday, October 9, 2017

    During the 10 years that took America from glittering heights to the depths of economic devastation, New York State transformed the nation. The exhibition Roaring into the Future: New York 1925-35, on view June 18 through October 9 at Munson-Williams-Proctor Arts Institute Museum of Art, is a pioneering exploration celebrating the Empire State as the driving force behind the creation of 20th-century modernism. From Buffalo to Brooklyn, artists, designers, and manufacturers generated avant-garde art, fashion, technology, and music that resulted in the century’s most important artistic revolution. Lori Zabar, based in New York City and working with the Museum of Art staff, is the curator of this exhibition, originated by MWPAI.
